2012 Elite Series Power-Pole Slam Lake Okeechobee - Okeechobee, FL, Mar 22 - 25, 2012

Wipeout

10:11 am EDT, Mar 25, 2012 | By Steve Wright

If you've ever heard the 1960s hit song "Wipeout" by The Surfaris, you might recall the maniacal laugh that proceeds the word "wipeout," the only lyric in the drum solo of a song. 

 

Well, James Overstreet and I feel like we're surrounded by birds belting out that maniacal laugh. 

 

"I don't recall the birds being this (expletive deleted) loud," Overstreet said. 

 

We're usually ready for the looney bin after one of these two-week Bassmaster Elite Series road trips, and we're maybe more so now. 

 

Meanwhile, Chris Lane continues to methodically flip a jig in the thick reeds along Observation Shoal. "I don't want to cull much today," Lane said. "Nothing but big ones."
